    Indonesians charged with trafficking 340kg of meth

    GEORGE TOWN: Four Indonesian men have been charged at a Magistrates Court here with trafficking in 340,246gm of methamphetamine in a bungalow in Batu Ferringhi.

    Dwi Supriyatno Mei, 43, Fredy Hermawan, 40, Andy Paksi, 38, and Indra Mulyadi, 40, are alleged to have committed the offence at the house in Jalan Batu Ferringhi at 9.30pm on Oct 27.

    No plea was entered and bail was not offered as drug trafficking under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 carries a mandatory death sentence upon conviction.

    Magistrate Noor Fadzila Ishak fixed Dec 10 for mention pending the chemist’s report.

    On Oct 29, Penang police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Ayub Yaakob told a press conference that the raid was the state’s largest Ecstasy bust ever and the drugs seized were worth more than RM38mil.

    In the same court, Toh Ooi Hwa, 57, was charged with trafficking in 1,000gm of methamphetamine in front of a business premises in Lorong Delima 5, Gelugor, at the same time and day.

    The court fixed the same mention date.

    Counsel Muhammad Amir Abdul Rani represented Toh while the Indonesians were not represented.

    What gives?

    ^^ not sure I get what you mean. The numbers are slightly off to me: 340,246gm- 758.48 #'s = 344.76 kilos. Thats assuming 28g/oz 448gm/# . They could be using other models as well- troy oz's are a little over 31grams and I think in some instances an ounce is measured as something like 28.35 grams. (from memory so don't quote me).

    Basically a kilo is 1000grams- so the numbers are pretty much on ...

    ^^ Um, yeah my bad. I just never got used to the idea of using comma as a thousands-separator. It's confusing. :confused:

    Four Indonesians face gallows for drugs

    GEORGE TOWN: Four Indonesian men were jointly charged at the magistrate’s court here for drug trafficking that is believed to be linked to RM38mil drug bust here recently.

    Dwi Supriyatno Mei, 43, Fredy Hermawan, 40, Andy Paksi, 38, and Indra Mulyadi, 40, are alleged to have trafficked 340,246gm of methamphetamine in a bungalow in Jalan Batu Ferringhi, at 9.30pm on Oct 27.

    They were charged under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act, which carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.

    No plea was entered and bail was not offered.

    Methamphetamine is known variously as ice, crystal or syabu.

    Magistrate Noor Fadzila Ishak fixed Dec 10 for mention pending the chemist’s report.

    On Oct 29, Penang police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Ayub Yaakob told a press conference that the raid was the state’s largest Ecstasy bust and the drugs seized were worth more than RM38mil.

    In the same court, Toh Ooi Hwa, 57, was charged with trafficking in 1,000gm of methamphetamine in front of a business premises in Lorong Delima 5, Gelugor, at the same time and day.

    The court fixed the same mention date.

    Meanwhile, police are now trying to determine if the drugs were meant for the overseas market. Investigations have shown that the Indonesian-based syndicate moved its operations to Malaysia to avoid having to smuggle the drugs into the country.

    Other than the drugs, the police also forfeited eight luxury cars worth RM1.2mil, RM209,000 in cash, jewellery and several laptops.
